'At The Dinner Party' is the chance for you, your family and your friends to experience professional restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home.
As a highly skilled and experienced chef, I will work with you to produce a menu personal to your very own needs, whether it be simple or sensational.
I will then come to your chosen venue, your house a self-catering cottage you‘re renting or a marquee in your garden. On the day of the event I will arrive at your venue at a prearranged time and will prepare, cook and serve you the perfect dinner party.
All you and your guests need to do is sit back and relax, I will take care of everything, even the dishes.
There really are no limitations, whether you want a romantic dinner for 2, a fine dining party experience for 20, a shoot party provided by outside catering, by your own private chef, a classy touch to your best friends hen party or some private cookery lessons. At the dinner party can cater them all.
Having been a chef for over 15 years my career has taken me on a journey through this amazing industry, from 5 star resort hotels, private villas in the French alps, beach side restaurants in Greece, numerous Michelin star restaurants including 2 Michelin star restaurant Le Gavroche. Where working with Michel Roux Jnr transformed me from a good chef to a great chef.
2009 saw me reach the final of BBC's MasterChef the professionals, where I finished runner-up. In 2011 I reached the final of the Compass/Restaurant Associates chef of the year once again finishing as runner up. More recently in 2017 having fought off competition from some of the countries best chefs I made it to the semi-finals of the National Chef of the Year. In 2018 I reached the final of the Kikkoman Masters competition again battling it out with some of the countries best chefs.
When it comes to produce I refuse to compromise on quality. That's why I work very closely with my local suppliers to source ingredients from local producers and farmers, with the aim not only to use the freshest produce, but to also have a positive effect on the local community.
Some of my food hero's are Dales of Malton - Fruit & Veg, Food to Remember - Butchers, R&J Yorkshire's finest, Hodgsons fish, I also use the weekly farmers market.
Whether you really just want to be able to cook your own dinner party with confidence, or you want to add more complex skills to your repertoire. As a highly experienced professional chef I have an abundance of knowledge to share with you.
